Top 10 Audio loves for a focused workspace

workspaceGina HousemanComment

Recently I've been listening to audiobooks while I work. I, of course, love music but I think as an extrovert that spends most of her day working alone in a studio, the sound of a human voice reading a story aloud, can keep me focused longer. I also enjoy podcasts for this reason, but I tend to plow through quite a few in one days work. These are a few of the titles and podcasts I've really engaged with:


  • The Fire Starter Sessions by Danielle LaPorte
  • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  • Wild by Cheryl Strayed


  • Radiolab
  • This American Life
  • Death, Sex & Money
  • 99% Invisible (for the design/built world enthusiast)
  • The Bowery Boys (for captivating new york city history)
  • After The Jump with Grace Bonney (design of all topics)
  • Welcome to Night Vale (for it's clever absurdity)

And I'm always looking for more! Tell me what you're listening to these days, and how you get work done.
